Hi from Paris,
Thanks for all your responses (especially Sarah &
I was stupid enough to think that in Rev, the reference
"bg" was invalid, so I didn't even try it.
I now have several ways to get what I want.
On the comments about WHY I want to convert my
HC stacks :
1 - My HC stacks look so DRAB, compared to Rev,
2 - My HC field contents are badly displayed in Rev,
3 - My HC stacks lean heavily on XFCN's and XCMD's,
and so they don't run successfully,
4 - I want to leave the HC world (with regrets), before
Apple pulls the plug on OS9, and all the applications
that go with it,
5 - I want to run some of my stacks on the PC, to be able to
distribute them to my family (Family Tree), or my music
collegues (Song Catalogue). There are still a few people
in this world who insist on using PC's ......
6 - I have unlimited time and patience on my 3 computers, and
even after 40 years of programming, I love using Rev.
and finally :
I belong to that strange group of people who would rather
spend 10 days programming a solution to convert my HC
scripts, than spending 30 minutes doing it manually !
I will now return to the complex task of "parsing" HC scripts to
convert them to Rev format, PURELY for the joy of succeeding !
When I don't program for > 48 hours, I get withdrawal symptoms !
